Today the Daring Cardmakers have just one word to give you as a starting point for this week's Little Extra challenge, and that word is
This is my card for the dare - I had fun making this, but now need to get back to the more serious business of making my card for Friday's main dare.
I've got another card to show you, but I'll do that later, so pop back if you've time and check it out - I'll also add the £what I used" info for this one too.
The word "Sunshine" always starts me singing - there are loads of songs with the word in the title or lyrics and generally they are the ones that go with the sunny weather and make you feel happy. When I was thinking about what to do for this dare I started singing the Morecambe and Wise theme tune "Bring Me Sunshine" - if you grew up in the UK, however young you are you'll know of this brilliant comedy duo as their "specials" are on TV pretty often - nearly always rolled out for Christmas. Eric Morecambe died several years ago, but they were a British Comedy Institution and their shows always ended with them disappearing off the back of the stage singing the song and doing the daft dance - you'd probably find most British people would know how to do the dance if you asked them! It really was very silly!
Anyway, the card is some orange cardstock, the gingham strip is from paper by pda, the big bloom is from Dunelm Mills (yay! I got some!!!) and the sun is made from a yellow punched circle and some triangles cut from a spare strip. Gold brad and teeny weeny bits of ricrac from my stash.
